RANT! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Deep breath in....deep breath out.

My cousin who got engaged 6 days after me (for the second time to the same guy after 11 years of dating) and then snuck her wedding in a month before mine just went dress shopping and low and behold...picked two dresses that are so similar to me that it makes me want to cry. hard.

You can't fully tell here because theknot sucks and pictures are TINY, but it a dropped waist, sweetheart neckline, buttons down the back and a tulle bottom.  I know the bottoms are diferent but the part that really gets me is the bodice.   Mine has cascading lace into the tulle and so is hers. 

Me in my dress:

Her top choice:

    If it's any consolation, you look AMAZING in your dress and I like yours much better.  Despite that fact, they are clearly very similiar and I would be irate too.

    Wow...that...really...sucks.  I mean I know they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but I know you're like why can't she go imitate someone else!  I agree with Goofy.  Yours is a much better overall design.  Also perhaps it's your height or the designer did a better cut on yours or something but you fill yours out better than she does.  You can always add a sash or something if you want it to stand out even more.  But just let it all be a good reminder not to share any other info with her since she's such an admirer of yours.

    It is similar, but these are definitely two different dresses. Yours looks a lot more...finished. Nicer. Hoestly more expensive! And as PPs have said, you look wayyyy better in it. Zip the lips regarding any additional wedding planning and hopefully nothing else like this will happen...

    Thanks ladies...that makes me feel a lot better :)

    I just don't get it.  I purposely went out of my way to show her the dress so she WOULDN'T get the same dang thing.

    Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.  I need a glass of wine.

    I agree with the others, you definitely look better in yours.  Though I'd be a little ticked off in this situation as well.  I'd keep all future details away from this one.

    Edit: Also, does it look to anyone else like the copycat has an arrow emphasizing her crotch?
